I have shown some of these in old threads but there are some new ones thrown in here. These are all with my cell phone, with out editing. Just under LED lights at the right angle and I would say the images are very color accurate.

I know some of you are turned off by toned gold like this, but we all have our thing and this is def a niche market on these. I have the bug, as you can see.. And feel free to post yours!

Toned gold!
Didn't know it could tone that much.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

The 1900 & 1907 Quarter-eagles are really looking sweet in these images. Better than 62 and perhaps the toning muted some of the luster because they look choice.

Nice coins! I really like the toning, especially the Liberty Head quarter eagles!

I always enjoy your posts with beautiful coins. All I'd ask for was more "coin only" photos without background.

Then I could drool even more

Moxking. Not sure you got it a month or so ago, but I messaged you to tell you how much I love your posts.. so I really appreciate the compliment as I really trust your eye and words. I would love to be able to crop these images further but they are taken with my phone and if I crop them, the resolution gets very low and the coins start to not look accurate as they do in hand. And also my phone does not take accurate looking macron detail shots so I found that the slab view is a happy medium of detail vs. real color. Still a work in progress. Some of my coins have been professionaly imaged but this is the best I can do with these at the moment.

Also when I crop these very photos to show only the coin it can make the image appear color edited which they are not. I figure showing the slab, a tiny bit of color around the slab and the light reflection is the most honest way I can show the coins. The background serves that purpose for me mostly. .... to show the truth. I wish I could get better resolution and zoom in more.

I like them all, but the reverse on the 1850 is stunning.
